Red Bull Rampage: Wish You Were There?

by and 6

You may have heard people say things like ‘Rampage is too groomed these days, it’s getting too easy’, or ‘It’s just tricks, it’s not mountain biking’. Alternatively, there’s the ‘It’s too dangerous, someone will get killed’ camp. Some of my colleagues are among them. Me? I think I’ve actually come around over the years, watching it less through worried fingers and more with interest and appreciation.

    If you don’t like being around people while they’re having fun just stay at home.
